Welcome to our Website. We are a small, hobby-grade Border Collie kennel, with ambition to breed quality dogs that will be life companions for their owners. Health and well-being of the dogs is imperative in our breeding philosophy and only then we aim for conformance with the standard. We are also putting strong emphasis on dogs temperament and very pronounced 'off switch'.
Where we are
We are located in Kaštela, Croatia, picturesque suburban area between Split and Trogir. Such a location offers a lot of space for our dogs so they can have appropriate amount of physical activity this breed needs.
Border Collies are intelligent and agile breed with rich history. Eager to please, fast learners and very obedient dogs, they are suitable for wide variety of activities. Historically they were primarily used as a herding dogs, but in modern times, they became very popular in dog sports, as a show dogs and awesome family pets. However, they require constant challenges and interaction with people.
Loth Ardens is FCI registered, recognized and protected kennel. We are also members of Croatian Kennel Club (Hrvatski kinološki savez; HKS), Sporting Dog Club Split (Klub sportskih pasa Split; KSP) and Border Collies Section at KSP.
